The Hip Hop Nutcracker Key-Art
Art direction and design for The Hip Hop Nutcracker's official key art.
A holiday mash-up for the whole family, The Hip Hop Nutcracker is a contemporary dance spectacle directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber. The show is a re-mixed version of the classic, showcasing vibrant hip hop choreography set to Tchaikovsky’s timeless music. It also follows the original storyline of the ballet we all love, but visually takes us on this journey throughout the streets of contemporary New York City.
I collaborated with The Hip Hop Nutcracker's creative team to create key art for this wonderful show. Their main request was to visually represent the marriage of the two contrasting styles that they so successfully paired in their show:
a classic story with classical music + hip hop dance in a contemporary city.
Having performed in the ballet myself for at least six consecutive years made working on this project an all out treat for me!
